Description

Size/Age:

The Vietnamese stick insect, Medauroidea Extradentata, is a simple to care for stick insect species perfect for beginners and inexperienced keepers. These stick insects can grow up to 10 centimetres long, making them a medium-size species. These insects are twiglike and brown or green, looking more like actual sticks than most other popular species kept in the hobby. The vietnamese stick insect lives for around half a year, making them a low-commitment pet even for stick insects, which typically live for one year. After reaching sexual maturity, the stick insect colony will begin to lay eggs and, after just a few months, the next generation will be born. Vietnamese stick insects are parthenogenetic, meaning they require no male to reproduce, however males of this species do exist but are rare, and serve to diversify the genetic pool.  Medauroidea extradentata are exceptionally low maintenance insects, feeding on blackberry bramble, hawthorn, oak, red maple, and rose, many of which are easily found in the UK. They require a large, mesh enclosure so to give them space to wander and molt. The temperature for this species should be kept at around 20 °C to 30 °C, with relative humidity levels of around 50% RH. Humidity can be maintained via regular misting of the enclosure or with a moistened soil-based substrate such as coco-coir. Vietnamese stick insects can be gently handled as they are exceptionally slow moving and docile. Overall, we highly recommend this species to beginner keepers looking for a decently sized, placid, and prolific stick insect species to rear.

We’re confident in the quality husbandry, shipping, and packaging of our livestock. On the rare occasion an animal arrives in poor condition, we will provide credit for the cost of that animal. If all animals in the shipment arrive in poor condition, we will also provide credit for the postage.

If you’ve received an unwell animal in the mail:

1. If it is safe to do so, (your pet is not medically significant or harmful) please remove the animal from its transport container, ideally onto your hand. We ask this as invertebrates, particularly insects, are experts at ‘playing dead’.

2. To provide you with the best advice going forward and to confirm the condition of your pet, we kindly request a short video of the animal in question before your refund can be processed. This can be uploaded on our ‘live guarantee refunds form’, or you can email it straight to us.

We’ll need this information to reach us within 7 days after you’ve received your pet. We cannot provide any live guarantee to animals that have been refused, returned, or not collected.
